♪ the new movie, lincoln, has brought the president's life and legacy back to the forefront. what lessons can be learned for today's political process? >> john dickerson is here with a look at the president's second term. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> lincoln and fdr, according to doris kearns goodwin looked at their first term and gave them instructions for their second term. if president obama does that, what will he do differently? >> basically i think he will be less accommodating to republicans. he will -- now he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected. and he will kind of give up on the attempt to get bipartisan consensus, creating a new kind of post partisan washington. all of those dreams are gone by experience.
7:43am
and the lessons he has learned is to be a little bit tougher and that a result is more beneficial than a process that might look good, but that gets you no results. >> president obama, john, has said many times team of rooifb s -- rivals is one of his favorite books and if he had to save anything it would be the bible and the team of rivals. is he assembling a team of rivals during his second term? >> no, it doesn't appear to be the case. what's extraordinary about this film of lincoln and steward, that was his second rival, going after the 13th amendment is kind of the manager of the vote counting. lincoln puts this important task in the hands of his rival. there's no evidence that that is necessarily going to take place except for the fact that often in congressional negotiations the president, who doesn't have a great love of the working with senators and congressmen put
7:44am
that task in the hand in the past he has put it in the task of joe biden, who was not like stewa steward, a great rival, but a rival of a kind in those democratic primaries. >> this is also true, that the president, if he looks at this film, will understand that abraham lincoln was prepared to make deals. abraham lincoln would do anything because he thought the 13th amendment was so important that he spent a considerable part of hi his time just trying to get the deal done. >> boy, you're exactly right. look at the three things that lincoln did. one, he bought votes essentially. that's a little harder to do today. remember when ben nelson, the democratic senator, was bought off with a cornhusker -- once that came out in the light of day, it went away. you have to string along your allies. lincoln takes the conservative republicans and basically to get their vote promises to let negotiations continue with the
7:45am

spending mood. we'll ask the ceo of jc penney about his holiday goals and why his stores didn't open on thanksgiving. and 60 years of portraits show queen
8:01am
>> eye opener at 8:00 is brought to you by the aarp. i'm charlie rose with gayle king. norah o'donnell is off today. black friday's bargain hunting began early than of this year. stores that opened on thanksgiving night had plenty of shoppers waiting. >> a new gallop poll say 18% of people plan to shop today. sale prices are a big reason.
8:02am
family tradition that play as factor too. seth doane is at a target store in jersey city, new jersey. one of the stores where shoppers got a head start last night. seth what are the crowds like today? >> reporter: well, gayle in many ways they are not as crazy as generally imagine for black friday. a lot of that craziness happened last night when stores opened 8:00, 9:00, you saw long lines in front of stores. the store we're at here at target had a very long line, hundreds of people in line at 8:00. just imagine now these stores have been open for 11 or so hours. one of the things we're hearing from target people are spending more time in these stores and not just coming in and buying tvs or spending time in the housewares or home section because it's a more leisurely evening experience that black friday has crept into thanksgiving day. >> there's a lot of talk about online shopping, changing the turn out. have you seen any indication of
8:03am
that in your location? >> well, yeah. absolutely. you see a lot more of these. bar codes. top selling toys. go to the toy aisle and scan the bar code and ship it to your loved one anywhere in the country for free. that's happening as these stores really try to compete with the convenience that can be found online. also everyone is using these apps. i walked in today, there's an app called shop kick and it gave me points for coming in to the store. retailers want you to come in to the store. maybe you'll buy more than you planned on than if you were shopping online. >> black friday is a traditional day when retailers make their yearly profit. but it's going to take longer for jc penney to get out of that red. the company lost more than $430 million this year. ceo ron johnson is in a jc penney store outside of san francisco. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. how are you? hi, gayle. >> good to see you. >> we're interested to see what's going on with your store.
8:04am
why didn't you follow what other stores were doing and make an exception for your store on thanksgiving? >> i really believe there's two great traditions that happen this time of year. one is thanksgiving which is a day to give thanks for all the blessings we have. the second is the kick start to the holiday season. black friday is called black friday because it should start on friday. no matter when you open you'll have a big crowd. customers want the best value. but we think we should honor both families and shopping and we chose to do both. >> one thing people are looking at with your stewardship of jc penney is your model to turn it around and it doesn't seem in terms of the early returns that you're able to do what you wanted to do, on the on the other hand you argue it's a long term plan. what are the benchmarks for you in turning around jc penney? >> well, to me, charlie, the big
8:05am
benchmark is february 1st next year. we expected one year of transition if we changed our pricing. we're trying to teach people new way to shop. and we want people to shop on their terms. it's like today, our values are available all day long from the moment we opened at 6:00 until 11:00 at night. people can balance their personal needs with our store needs and it's going to take a year to teach people really how respond to the new pricing. we deliver amazing value. i think we're one of the best kept secrets but we expect to return to growth next year. >> last time you were here you laid out your new strategy and everybody that heard it thought it was a great idea. why do you think it didn't go according to plan and has that been frustrating for you. >> i think it takes time. you know we spent decades teaching people how to find value in a store. retailers do, a lot of people make up prices to create until lugs of savings. we said enough of that. we want to treat customers fair
8:06am
and square. like the decision not to interrupt the turkey dinner to go shop. these are things that are long term values. and it's going to take time for people to understand that. but i'm trying to position jc penney for the next hundred years not this year. >> one of the things you say in terms of responding to criticism is that you say when you were at apple and creating apple stores, retail stores that it took a long time and that steve jobs had a game plan. how did you convince the critics that they can wait for you to do what you want to do? >> i think people will wait. you got to remember for every sale of a stock another person buy as stock. we have a rotation in our investor base. our investors are looking at where we'll be down the road, not where we'll be this year. our vision is very clear. you know, we built out this really great mock up of the
8:07am
future jcp store in dallas. everybody gets to see that and excited about it and that will roll out next year. by back to school next year 40% of the store will be updated. a new home area, kid area. we'll be one of the most exciting stores in the mall in the next few months ahead. >> i can see you're enthusiasm, ron johnson. i'm hoping you're wearing a jc penney sweater. >> i am. this is our jcp sweater. it's actually -- think about this. it has cotton and cashmere and you can buy this today for $15. >> sounds like a deal. >> it's unbelievable. >> you're eliminating check out counters. how does that work? i don't quite understand what that means. >> a lot of people have been to an apple store. every employee carries an ipod and we can check you out
8:08am
anywhere any time. the check out counter will go away. the employees that were waiting for to you check out will meet you when you are thinking to buy. we will deliver more service and convenience as we do that. we're doing that today here. >> let's look at the fourth quarter. you have computer technology today that gives you a way to look at where this quarter will end, this final quarter in the year. do you think it will be less than expected? >> you know, i can't really talk at this point in time about a performance for the quarter. we had an unbelievable day online yesterday. way exceeded our expectations. our crowds today, the kick-off of the holiday season on the east coast and the midwest are much larger than last year. that's the beginning of the day. we have to get through the whole day. i'm very encouraged by what i see yesterday and today. >> generally, overall buying in
8:09am
this holiday season. can you measure how it's comparing to other years? >> you really can't. it's way too early. i've been around retail for 30 years. i've had years where we had an amazing black friday and the holiday came in slow. other years where it started slow came in fast. so i think we got to get through it, add up the results and see where it falls. >> the interesting thing what you're doing now versus apple stores. when people were coming to apple stores there were hot products they were standing in the line get. what are they waiting for at a jc penney store? >> well today they are here to get, you know, electrics. $8 for toaster ovens and 12 cup coffee makers. it's price and value. it always will be on black friday. value is always important. that's why we're trying to deliver more value every

difficult. he looked at the shooter for a couple of seconds. i want to know what you think. i've been dying. when i come here i say good morning gayle and first time -- you speak to me it's like guilty, guilty. what do you think? >> have to say on this one i'm not so sure. normally i do, i have an opinion on most things but this one i'll be very curious. let's talk about the photo lineups. is the best way to do is those six packs? >> they should lay out the photographs one at a time. and also the detective who is showing the photograph should not be involved in the case. because of the body language. >> thank you troy roberts. always good to see you. i think we got your saturday viewing planned out for you viewers. you can see troy's full report on "48 hours" and charlie's "person to person" is right before that. that's tomorrow night at 10:00

teach life's lessons called "the four hour chef." learn anything and living the good life. welcome. >> thank you. >> i've known you for exercise, for all kinds of things in terms of self-improvement. why turn to cooking. >> cooking was one of the few skills that i failed over and over and over again and my readers have been asking me for a book on learning for several years. what better way to show the techniques on something i've avoid. >> those readers found what in your methodology? collection of techniques, very few of which i created such as the 80/20 principle where they look for 20% of activities that produce 80% or more of the results. take that and apply that to foreign vocabulary. i couldn't swim until a few years ago and i used the same process. >> you say, tim, anybody can

learn to do anything in six months if shown the right process. how does that work? >> if you think about, for instance when we go to school at least traditionally speaking you learn subjects. you learn math, you learn english but never thought,000 read properly or quickly. never taught,000 deacon struck a complex sub object you can approach it in a logical fashion. i took the last two years and looked at people like josh here in new york city who was the basis for searching for bobby fisher and actually learned chess in reverse. start with the end game. or people like daniel in uk who sailed the icelandic. trying to pick out the commonalities. what do they use. how do they look at things. then putting that into a blueprint that anybody can apply in something they want to learn.
8:47am
>> so in consideration of all that, how difficult was it to attack cooking? >> really difficult for me because i had no basis for let's say memorizing flavors. remembering taste was difficult. working with my girlfriend in the kitchen, she was very patient. i would ask her maybe 20 times a week is this basil? what is this? basil. just trying to figure out how to facility that process. researchers say there's something called the manil sensory institute. they taught me their taste receptors in the mouth and throat and stomach so i was able to hack it. >> you also use a term chef, though, tim as being the boss of your own life. >> right. >> what should we take away from that? >> what we should take away from it is that if you want to maximize your potential you have to be a self-reliant as possible
8:48am
and the way you do that is increase your learning speed and scope of your learning and it doesn't have to be complicated. that's what i would say. being the boss of your life, director instead of the spectator applies not only to you but people around you. take the same skills and teach your kids or your friends. >> when gayle goes to a restaurant she gets this vip treatment and you suggest others can do that too. >> like you don't. calling the kettle black. so for people who would like the vip treatment -- >> there are a few tricks you can use. >> give us your top three tips. >> top three tips. first is actually borrowed from an editor of cookbooks. when you go to the restaurant ask the waiter, what is the most popular dish and also the chef's favorite dish that doesn't get ordered enough. number one. you often have chefs come out
